With an External Platform Services Controller you have the ability to manage multiple vCenter servers from one pane. It sounded like quite a cool option so I thought I would get it installed in the lab!
vCenter Architecture Options:
- Build a Windows Server VM with 2 CPUs and 2 GB of RAM
- Attach the vCenter 6.0 ISO to your VM
- Double click the autorun to start setup. Click Install then next
- Enter a System Name and click Next
